Hi we have an old ibm typewriter. I changed the ribbon and the wheel. I cleaned everything but still prints half of the letters. The top part to be exact.


There should be an adjustment on the head that sets the angle of the strike for the wheel. Unfortunatley there are no diagrams available for this technology

Typewriter is working fine but won't type anything on the paper - new ribbon / new printwheel - no impression. Appears to be stuck on a "stencil" setting.


Put in a mulit part form, if it prints on the copies the ribbon isn't lifting, if it dosen't the plastic cap on the print solenoid needs replaced.

Put new ribbon cartridge in ibm wheelwriter 3 not printing now


If the ribbon is lifting up you probably have a cracked print solenoid plunger cap. They are available but a little tricky to install.

I have a brother electric typewriter and the print on the paper is no longer sharpin appearence.I changed ribbon to no effect.Now what?


MAKE SURE RIBBON IS INSTALLED CORRECTLY, SHOULD BE BETWEEN "FINGERS" NEXT TO CARDHOLDER AND CARDHOLDER.
COULD BE A BAD BATCH OF RIBBONS
SOMETIMES CORRECTABLE RIBBON DOESN'T PRINT WELL ON CERTAIN TYPES OF PAPER, SUCH AS "NCR" PAPER, TEXTURED, SLICK OR ANY PAPER THAT HAS BEEN THROUGH A PRINTING PROCESS (FORMS, LETTERHEADS, ETC.)
CHECK RIBBON ITSELF. THE CARBON SHOULD BE A FAIRLY EVEN LAYER. IF THERE ARE BLANK PLACES----

Sounds like you need a new ribbon or you are using non-Swintec compatible ribbons that are not properly aligned to your ribbon feed. Try using Swintec brand ribbons and see if this still occurs. Worst case scenario, you need to have your ribbon feed adjusted at your local dealer.

There is a plastic cap on the end of the print solenoid plunger that nis probably broken the part is available about 10.00 but a little tricky to replace.
